Extra Information Re-numbered to 127 and the front painted into Brighton & Hove livery at Lewes Road depot in July 1997 as it carried an overall advert for Garden Pride. Withdrawn in March 1998 and sold to Southern National. To Ripley (Dlr.), Carlton in February 2002 for scrap. PVS (Dlr.), Carlton had this bus in September 2005, so who had it between 2002 & 2005? Thanks to Southdown Enthusiasts Club for this update.
Photo Caption Seen at Brighton Station by Mervyn Stedman is National 2 no.27 wearing Garden Pride overall advertising livery. One of several vehicles to carry this advert either all-over or as a 'super rear'.
